Karma SUCKS! So yesterday - I cashed in my little jar of change for our upcoming vacation….and the bank’s machine was off. Somewhere during the day it went wrong and they didn’t notice until they dumped in my coin. Long story short - I ended up leaving with $160 more than I should have had cause they had to pay what the machine said….Fast forward to this morning - Yankton County is now getting that money cause I got pulled over for expired plates. Damn rain washing my plates clean…Damn Karma for giving my money to such a crappy cause! Ba Humbug!
It only took three days of nagging before my husband finished putting shelves in the pantry! Now all that crap is off the floor and neatly organized in our home “store”. My husband now has a midly happy wife. (Can’t be all the way happy - my “To Do” list is still quite lengthy)
It is officially Spring today…and I got a jump on the cleaning with the help of my husband. We made this pantry area under the stairs just off the kitchen and it never got the shelves put in. So after not quite a year of nagging - my husband graciously let me empty out the pantry so that he could put in shelves.
Not all the shelves are in and so all the stuff is still scattered through the dinning room - but he assures me tonight it will get finished. Let the nagging begin.
Crawford is calling me hideous… I think it is a sweet & nerdy kind of cute:
I know I have been neglecting my blog here on wnax.com but that is no more! I vow to be better about updating so I will start with my recent vacation to Mexico.
Here were are Zip-linning 80 feet above the forest floor:
And we also enjoyed spending time at our restort:
We have had the boiler since Thanksgiving and my husband and I finally got it running Sunday night! It took us all day…and thank goodness we did - it is awfully cold in the wind today! Yeah for HEAT! It smells so yummy. It makes me hungry for s’mores!
Sit, eat, nap….according to my husband - how can Thanksgiving not be your favorite holiday?!?!
Cause I am the one that gets to cook, clean & complain - though I do that quite regularly
I don’t particularly care for gobs of makeup….but in the glossy magazines I flip through - that generally make me hate myself - I find I wish I could wear the smokey eyes or colorful shadows those gals wear. So I went out - bought one of those colorful makeup kits….and tried it out today! I still couldn’t go too heavy on the color - but be honest….do I look like a clown? I mean more than usual!?!?!
Or do I need a whole lot more?
And check out my new shoes….Dee helped me pick them out!
It is my first Christmas in our new house and since it feels like Christmas time inside at 43 degrees - I figured it was ok to look like it too! Thought - as we were discussing holiday decorating (my husband and I) decided that the current tree is too large for the living room….as we won’t be able to see out the nice bay window. So we came to the agreement that we - more I - will be putting up two trees! I bought a skinner, REVOLVING tree and decorated it in blue, green & white…and the original big tree will go in the dinning room with out family ornaments!
The lights I bought for the tree have a REMOTE!!! How lazy are we all that we can’t bend down and unplug the things!!! AAAHHHH! I thought it looks pretty though - and the icicles in the window look like they are dripping! LED lights are so cool!!!
We took the Mamma’s to Reba last night at the Tyson Event Center in Sioux City, IA. Kenny brought his Mamma Bass…and I brought no only my Mamma Michele, I also brought my Mamma-in-law Susan! My sister-in-law Kate came too! It was a really great night out with the girls (and Kenny)!
